Nike Innovates

You’ve probably noticed Nike introduce quite a bit of new tech lately in running shoes. They’ve also updated existing offerings! Not sure how the details stack up? We’ve compiled a quick comparison of the most popular options below! All styles are available locally at JackRabbit Nashville!

 

React Infinity

Brand new creation for all levels of runner, this shoe delivers a secure feel and injury prevention focus- offering neutral cushioning with a few stability features.

Benefits Include:

  • A Lightweight Fit – The all-new Flyknit Loft technology is stronger and more durable than previous iterations. It features 3 distinct layers to help keep your foot secure while providing a lightweight and flexible feel when you move.

  • A Stable Feel – Higher foam stack heights provide a softer feel. A wider shape provides a more stable ride, helping release energy with every step.

  • A Smooth Ride – The shape of the Nike React foam midsole is all about zonal performance, providing support for the 3 phases of a runner’s stride: flexibility at toe-off, a smooth ride at mid-stance and cushioning at contact.

  • Superior Response – Less material in the shoe means you’re closer to the foam, creating a softer, more responsive experience. Plus increased rubber at the outsole helps deliver traction and durability.

Pegasus 36

A classic daily runner with neutral cushioning- intended for runners who have a higher, more stable arch that does not pronate excessively.

Benefits Include:

  • Perforations on upper enhance breathability in forefoot and arch and the reduced tongue weight from the Pegasus 35 conforms to your foot.

  • The full-length Zoom Air unit provides a smooth, responsive ride, pairing well with the Cushlon ST foam which provides firm yet responsive cushioning.

  • Slimmer design reduces bulk for a comfortable, conforming fit.

  • Exposed Flywire cables in the midfoot promote a snug fit at higher speeds and the waffle pistons on outsole help absorb impact and provide multi-surface traction.

 

Pegasus Turbo

A classic daily runner with neutral cushioning and an ultralight feel- perfect for fast-paced workouts and race day.

Benefits Include:

  • This special color nods to the annual relay by using visual cues taken from Hakone’s mountainous landscape and the Japanese bullet train

  • The lofted mesh upper is lighter than its predecessor, and the translucent material makes it look as breathable as it feels

  • Ultra-light Nike ZoomX midsole delivers Nike Running’s greatest energy return yet

  • Engineered heel collar tapers away from the foot for comfort around your Achilles tendon
